Curtis McGinnis Sr. reflects on four decades of Christian retail ministry as Cedar Springs Christian Store in Knoxville, Tennessee, marks its 40th anniversary. “People used to be able to drive to a specialty store, but now there are Christian books everywhere,” he says. “That’s good, but makes it hard.” Between the growth of online sales and the fact that Christian books are more widely available in outlets such as Walmart and Barnes & Noble, “the future doesn’t look good,” McGinnis admits, but he keeps a positive outlook that “…if it all goes away, [the Lord] will have something else for us.”
